Monday motivation

It's the truth, isn't it? I mean, think about it.  Mondays are almost like the "new year." It's the fresh start to a new week, a new diet, or in my case, new cleaning project.  Today was spent cleaning out my scrap bin….very scary, but almost finished. I think tomorrow those scraps are going to lead into a new scrap quilt.

It helped that I was listening to new audio book I had downloaded: 'I Declare: 31 Promises to Speak Over Your Life' by Joel Osteen. A friend had started reading it and recommended it, and I would have to do the same if asked by others. It's so refreshing, focusing on 31 daily blessings from God. Each day, one of those blessings is declared and discussed.
Today was my Day 8 and it read…..I declare God's dream for my life is coming to pass.  It will not be stopped by people, disappointments, or adversities. God has solutions to every problem I will ever face already lined up. The right people and the right breaks are in my future.

I truly believe this to be true. So often in life I have been determined to steer a certain direction and the harder I try to be in control, the better I can mess things up! When I finally realize what I'm doing and stop worrying and stop depending on myself and instead let Him take over…..amazing how much smoother everything goes!!

So…..go have a Happy New Week!

  1. Great post. Love Joel, as well. You are correct, life is easier when you let it flow and stay connected to your source. Why push a rock down a hill; just let it roll and if it stops, find another rock.
